Subject Allow overridden request methods
Date Wed, 13 May 2009 04:29:48 GMT
Hello all,
I recently looked into utilizing couchdb in a Flash application when I
came across a frustrating limitation: flash only allows GET and POST
methods. Apparently, this kind of limitation is more common that you
would expect in certain clients. Unfortunately, this makes using
couchdb rather difficult. Here's a great post about the problem:
What would be the possibility of allowing request methods to be
overridden with the X-HTTP-Method-Override header? This would allow
the request to be made with POST, but the method that couchdb receives
to be whatever value you attach to the X-HTTP-Method-Override header.
